Bricklaying students from Lincoln College’s, Construction Career College, visited the Travelodge site in Lincoln city centre last week.
Head of Career College, Rick Long, said; “At the Construction Career College we aim to better prepare our learners for the world of work, to ‘de-risk’ their employment and enable them to make informed decisions on their career choices.
Exposure to R G Carter staff and access to your sites gives our learners experiences of the ‘real world’ to support their practical and theoretical learning in college. To see, feel and take part in activities and visits outside of the college environment makes a positive impact on the learner’s motivation, attendance and success chances. R G Carter support is essential to the preparation for work these young people need, it is greatly appreciated by the students and the College.”
One of the learners who visited commented, “I never knew the importance you place on safety. Safety is the most important issue on your site. Thank you.”
